"Soul Searching..."


"Why am I doing what I'm doing?"


So this will maybe be kinda long-winded...and maybe a bit angsty (is that a word?)...but I've been wondering lately what I'm really doing with, and in relation to, my business and blog.  I've been floundering a bit with it all...Feeling overwhelmed for no really good reason.

I have all these ideas and projects swimming around in my head...and I'm not sure how to organize my thoughts and activities.

And today I could finally put into the words the feelings I was having:

There are a lot of people out there doing what I do...and they're doing it better than I am.

Yeah.  I know.  Such a HUGE revelation, right.


Pardon my sarcasm.


I've been trying to figure out why I'm doing what I'm doing.  And being able to pinpoint the feelings I've been having has made me question a few things.

Like: "Is what I'm doing useful?"  "Is it needed or necessary?"  "Does it matter if it is...or isn't?"

And I can honestly say that I don't really know the answers to those questions yet...


I do know that I like being creative...I like being a mom...I like being a wife...I like to crochet, and blog, and, sew, and doing fun things with my kids...I like being me...

And being true my ever-changing self is something I need to continue to work on. are a couple of quotes that have been helping see my potential and want to work harder to figure out why I do what I do.

So...I'm trying some new things and stretching and learning some things about myself...And I'll keep doing a little soul searching and keep you updated!

Sorry I left ya'll hanging this week with the Make Something Monday Link Party...I needed a little vacation from my vacation if you know what I mean! ;)

I'll be back next week with another Make Something Monday party and a bunch of stay tuned!

Until then...and on a much more serious note...This past weekend was the April 2012 General Conference for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

It was a truly uplifting and inspiring couple of meetings.  I feel so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful organization, and would love to share that with you...

No pressure, of course!  Just click on the links above if you are interested in finding out more about the Mormons or if you would like to listen to any of the talks that were given! :)

And I'd also like to leave you with this inspiring video presentation on the Resurrection of our Savior. I feel so blessed to have the knowledge of my Savior's love and atonement for me.  It has blessed and shaped my life in so many ways.

Have a wonderful Easter!
